Varieties we are growing this season:
Quick Tip: Beans can be quickly blanched and stored in the fridge. They hold up a bit longer that way. Then you can snack on or add to dished rather quickly. If you don’t get to use the up — simply toss in the freezer for later. We find this very helpful.
BLANCH – place trimmed beans in boiling water for 2 minutes then directly into ice water bath to cool. Store drained beans in a container of your choice. Use within 1 week or freeze.
Bean Salad – – made this the other day used fresh beans not canned , trimmed and snapped into bite-sized pieces, steamed for 5 minutes or until tender, may need to adjust quantities for your salad
